Key advantages for having me champion your cause:

Academic background

My very start was marked by the passion for understanding the intricate nature of our society. Obtaining a D.E.C. in Social Science and Commerce at Marianopolis College was the perfect first step on the long path ahead. It enabled me to focus my research and complete with honors Bachelor of Arts in Psychology and Political Science at Concordia University. This armed me with the philosophy of social and cognitive principles necessary to develop a dedication for studying the law that governs behaviour in our society. The Faculty of Law at McGill University was fundamental to my grasp on what serves as a social mediator of relations between people, along with aquiring vast ammounts of legal knowledge, principles and doctrines. The Bar of Quebec and Bar of Montreal provide me the tools I need to run my private practice, a law office driven by the principles, knowledge, and critical thinking I've been developing throughout my career path. I am proud to offer my clients a stellar academic background designed for a trial attorney, and a firm dedication for litigation backed by all the tools required to execute.
